Straightforward Action With An Anti Left Subtext
3 May 2014 | by tariq-hossenbuxSee all my reviews

Enemies Closer is a fairly straightforward action movie set in the wilderness along the Canada-US border. Tom Everett Scott stars as Henry, a former navy seal who finds his military skills are needed again to deal with Van Damne's villainous drug smuggling Xander character. It features some good hand to hand combat sequences, and very little in the way of gun fighting. This is thanks to the fact that Xander is anti gun, and it is also established early on that he is an eco friendly organic vegan. When a villain is espousing these left wing values, it makes one a little suspicious about the agenda of the film and makes you question why it's there. Xander's character is explained and developed at one point when he tells a story about why he became a vegan. It should also be mentioned that Xander's gang of villains are mostly French too. Coincidence that they come from a very socialist area? On the other hand Ex soldier Henry Taylor does not tout a lot of right wing statements either. In fact he goes along as best as he can with the flow of the action accompanied by his partner Clay, played by Orlando Jones. Henry Taylor's character is revealed well by his interaction with Clay. His caring for others is in sharp contrast to the cold blooded nature of Xander. Xander's constant states about organic foods and the environment add an element of comedic relief to this film. I found it completely watchable as an action movie, and found the persistent anti left subtext in the film actually made it more entertaining to watch.
